Presets not showing up in Profile Browser

I've been trying to get my presets to work as profiles as I've heard this is a better way to use presets. However, the presets that I imported are not showing up in my Profile Browser.

The strange thing is that I can see a preset in the Profile Browser (called VOXCOLOR Orange and Teal) that DOESN'T show in my Presets window on the left.

 

I'm using Lightroom Classic CC 10.2 on Mac

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

No fix yet in LR; you fix using Camera Raw.

If I understand your question, you want to convert Presets to a Profile.

I believe you would need to use Adobe Camera Raw to apply a Preset then create a Profile in ACR.

You might find methods here-

Hi WobertC, I might not have explained myself very thoroughly. I'm not trying to convert anything but I was in the understanding that Presets could automatically be used as Profiles within Lightroom Classic CC. 

 

All I want to do is use the presets I bought and change the percentage on how strong they are.

Cannot be done!

Presets and Profiles are like Apples and Oranges- They are 'different'! (although they now both use the .XMP file suffix.)

Presets & Profiles- the Difference

The ability to change the 'percentage' of a Profile only occurs with "Creative" profiles.

Because Presets make (visible) adjustments to Sliders in the Develop panels (Basic, Tone curve, etc)- you can change those settings and then create a modified Preset.

"All I want to do is use the presets I bought and change the percentage on how strong they are."

 

To tie together what Wobertc and others have said, the only way to do this with built-in features is to use Camera Raw. Open a photo in Camera Raw, apply the preset, then make a creative profile that includes the develop settings of that preset.  Then in LR when you select the creative profile, you can change its amount slider. Let us know if you can't figure out how to do this from the links Wobertc posted.

 

Alternatively, you could use the Fader plugin to apply the preset with a variable strength.

If the sliders move, it's a preset. If the sliders don't move, it's a profile. And they are separated in the browser, partially for this reason.
